Vintage Button Snowman

Happy Wednesday!
WOW! This week is moving right along, we've already made it to hump day! I guess it helps being really busy at work to make your week pass by fast.

Today I have a sweet, simple little fun holiday tag featuring one of my very favorite things...a snowman!  A snowman made out of vintage buttons no less.
Pin It I used some Kraft card stock, cut out some medium sized scalloped circles using my Nesties and then glued the buttons on to form the snowman.
I added a little red and white baker's twine for his bow and then used an old Stampin Up set to stamp the sweet flakes and sentiment.
Lastly I  punched a hole at the top of the scallop and threaded another piece of twine through for the hanger.
I suppose you could use this for an ornament as well as a gift tag on a special package.  I think it turned out adorable!
I have 3 of these left in my Etsy shop for sale for a VERY reasonable price, so please check it out.  You're sure to find more lovelies when you visit too!

Thanks for stopping by today. Please come again really soon, but until then...have a lovely day!  HUGS! :)

Pin It!

Love it - so cute! I love anything "snowman". What old Stampin Up set did you use? I have a lot of SU stamps but don't recall seeing that before. I also love you Etsy store!

How old is the sentiment stamp you used? Trying to find one.

I also would love the stampin up sentiment. I went to a few parties years ago but where can I get this one? Thanks

I found the stamp set with the sentiment on ebay. it is a 2007 stampin up set called wishing you cheer. you might be able to find it on there also.

This is SUCH a great idea and easy for people like me:) Instead of stamping, however, I used my Silhouette Cameo machine's sketch capabilities :) Thank you so much for the idea!! :)
